Cozy Wrap for Compost
by Charlie Nardozzi
Composting is a great way to dispose of yard and kitchen waste without adding more volume to our landfills. In general, the warmer the pile, the faster the composting, so in many regions the cold weather means the end of active composting for the season. A new insulating cover can help keep your pile cooking longer so you have a finished batch of compost sooner than ever.
The Thermal Wrap compost cover holds in moisture and absorbs and retains heat. The 29" x 29" x 36 black polyethylene blanket is large enough to fit over standard-size wire bin composters. Its particularly useful in windy, cold climates where compost piles can dry out easily. The Velcro strips hold the cover together and grommets secure it to the ground.
